Go the Fuck to Sleep Book Description:

Go the Fuck to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a toddler sailing off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate and refreshingly honest, it captures the familiar and unspoken tribulations of putting your child to bed for the night. Colourfully illustrated and hilariously funny, this is a breath of fresh air for parents new, old and expectant.* *(You probably shouldn't read this to your children.)

The Sleep Revolution Book Description:

Co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post Arianna Huffington shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives, our personal lives--and even our sex lives in this New York Times bestseller. We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, with profound consequences to our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What we need is nothing short of a sleep revolution: only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives. In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream. She takes on the sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can get better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power. The result is a sweeping, scientifically rigorous, and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, from the history of sleep, to the role of dreams in our lives, to the consequences of sleep deprivation, and the new golden age of sleep science that reveals the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health--from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s. In today's fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually-harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important--and elusive--than ever. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help transform our lives, our communities, and our world.

Management of Sleep Disorders in Psychiatry Book Description:

Management of Sleep Disorders in Psychiatry provides the most comprehensive and evidence-based review of the clinical management of DSM-V based sleep-wake disorders in patients with psychiatric disorders. This book is organized into three sections that focus on the basics of sleep medicine, clinical features and treatment of DSM-V sleep-wake disorders, and evidence-based management of sleep disorders commonly associated with a range of DSM-V based psychiatric disorders. The first section orients the reader to topics such as sleep physiology, neural mechanisms of wakefulness and sleep, circadian rhythms, effects of sleep on cognition, history taking in sleep medicine, and clinical application of technical procedures used in the field of sleep medicine. The second section adopts a unique perspective of using DSM-V classification of sleep-wake disorders to integrate the management of sleep disorders with mainstream clinical psychiatry. This section features a comprehensive chapter on pediatric sleep-wake disorders, a topic of interest to fellows and practicing clinicians specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry. The third section offers the most comprehensive review of comorbidity, shared pathophysiology, and clinical management of sleep disorders within the context of a wide range of DSM-V based psychiatric disorders. This section also highlights important topics such as delirium, neurocognitive disorders, effects of psychotropic medications on sleep, neurological disorders, pain disorders, forensic sleep medicine, and eating disorders. This clinically-oriented resource provides case vignettes and clinical pearls to illustrate the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in the setting of a variety of psychiatric presentations. Additionally, each chapter includes a self-assessment section with multiple-choice questions that helps the reader solidify their clinical skills and prepare for the board and certification examinations for topics pertinent to sleep-wake disorders in psychiatry.

Biology of Sleep Substances Book Description:

All aspects of sleep sciences are included in this excellent resource text, with special reference to sleep substances and sleep modulators. The historical development of the theories of sleep are reviewed in conjunction with the technical problems. All candidate substances are overviewed as to their sites of presence, chemical nature, bioassay techniques, physiological and pharmacological effects. On the basis of a standardized methodology developed by the author, sleep-modulatory characteristics of some substances are compared and evaluated in quantitative terms. The sleep regulatory mechanisms, which are composed of complex neurohumoral subsystems, are analyzed from the results of recent neurophysiological and neuroendocrinological experiments. Furthermore, an evolutionary aspect of sleep substances is taken into consideration. Chapters Highlight: Techniques for isolation and evaluation Prostaglandins Paradoxical sleep factors Sleep-promoting substances and nucleosides

The Social Epidemiology of Sleep Book Description:

AN ESSENTIAL NEW RESOURCE ON A FUNDAMENTAL DETERMINANT OF HEALTH Sleep, along with the sleep-related behaviors that impact sleep quality, have emerged as significant determinants of health and well-being across populations. An emerging body of research has confirmed that sleep is strongly socially patterned, following trends along lines of socioeconomic status, race, immigration status, age, work, and geography. The Social Epidemiology of Sleep serves as both an introduction to sleep epidemiology and a synthesis of the most important and exciting research to date, including: · An introduction to sleep epidemiology, including methods of assessment and their validity, the descriptive epidemiology of sleep patterns and disorders, associations with health, and basic biology · What we know about the variation of sleep patterns and disorders across populations, including consideration of sleep across the lifespan and within special populations · Major social determinants of sleep (including socioeconomic status, immigration status, neighborhood contexts, and others) based on the accumulated research With editors from both population science and medicine, combined with contributions from psychology, sociology, demography, geography, social epidemiology, and medicine, this text codifies a new field at the intersection of how we sleep and the social and behavioral factors that influence it.
